Coming of Age

With you in mind I write down a head line
– seeing what develops is always a surprise
The Pied Piper is beckoning me ‘follow’,
words of wisdom tell me ‘do otherwise’
– for youth is short-lived & too often distasteful

I’m rallying for support with the coming of age
not foolish pride without sustenance
never living a lie of distrustful haste
never a hair out of its place
Baby, I’m asking you please, take me as I am
